You all know the drill.  Don't post this on any site without asking me first, 
and don't plagiarize any portion of it, either.  Feel free, however, to print
this out and/or distribute it, as long as you don't 'distribute it' to another 
site.  In other words, you can print the document out or share the link with 
others, but don't upload the file anywhere without my permission.  If you want 
to cut out a piece of it when you print it, you must put in the phrase "Edited 
by [your name]" below the version number.  If you do not, I will use my powers 
to send the Red Zone trio over to your house.  They will not treat you kindly.

If you are reading this file from any site other than the ones listed below, 
please contact me immediately!  It means that they stole it!

NotePad stinks, and I hate the way GameFAQs makes me use it.  But that's the
way things work, so I'll have to put up with it.  However, if you want to view
this in Word - and I don't blame you at all - then you'll have to change the
margins.  Go to FILE --> PAGE SETUP and change the left and right margins to
.5.  That way, at least, the paragraphs will be correct and you'll be able to 
read this like it was meant to be read.


 v1.0 Started up FAQ, got in all of the combat moves
 v1.5 Added introduction, legal, wrapup, attack description and gadget 
      description sections.
 v2.0 Reformatted to Notepad.
 v2.5 Finally brushed it up!  Reformatted, cleaned up, and my new email is 
      now avaliable.  If you want to submit, now is the time.
      Vedran submitted some moves!
 v3.0 Holy crap, was it really eight years ago that I wrote this guide?  EIGHT?
      Why am I so old! Geez, it's crazy to think about when I was a kid working
	  on this guide and playing this game all the time.  It's amazing what you
	  will play when you're an unjaded kid with no money.


Greetings!  Welcome to my very first FAQ!  As you can tell from the title, this 
is truly a comprehensive move list...  It covers the normal fighting moves, 
gadget combos, and even the Training Mode enemy moves.  I want to note that 
there are a few moves that I have observed the enemy AI executing but I have 
not been able to discover the combinations for.  I have left those moves blank 
in the lists, but if you know the combo, drop me a line and I'll put it in 
along with a credit for you.

Note: the combos are for use with a six-button controller.  If you want to play 
this game, invest in a six button controller...it will make everything easier, 
and it's more fun that way as well.  (Many other Genesis games benefit from six 
buttons, too. You won't be wasting your money.)  I recommend the official Sega 
6-Button Arcade Controller.

                      |BATMAN AND ROBIN STANDARD MOVES|

Most of them will work with the training mode characters as well, but some will

                      |BATMAN AND ROBIN GADGET MOVES|

These combos must be pressed in order to activate weapons with Batman and 
Robin.  Ones with an asterisk can only be used at close range with an enemy.  
(When your character is 'locked on'...as in you take steps backward when you 
press Back as opposed to simply turning around and walking forward.  To put it 
another way, it's when the game engine switches from a platformer to a fighter.)
Hopefully you're familiar with standard fighter lingo, like QCF and QCB.  To 
summarize it quickly:

  - QCF: Down, Down/For, Forward
  - QCB: Down, Down/Back, Back

Odds are that you know this already; I'm just trying to cover the bases.
